Record Store Day is FINALLY tomorrow. Dave Hause’s Home Alone EP is the #1 vinyl I want to pick up. Anything else will be bonus points. Keeping my eye on the prize. We’re starting the shopping in the morning, visiting events throughout the day, and then headed to the 9:30 PM show for Lucky Boy’s Confusion at Reggie’s Rock Club. Chicago is bursting at the seams with events and stores to check out. For those interested, here is a good listing of where’s and when’s.
I can remember the first LBC song I heard, when I heard it, and who got me into them. This was the song, it was at the Marine Corps Air/Ground Combat Center in Twentynine Palms, California (in the middle of the Mojave desert) and it was a friend of a then-boyfriend who had this song on a mix cd. The mix cd itself was only just okay and he rarely switched it out in his car for something else. This was the only song on the album that didn’t irritate me. Wait, that’s not true– there was an acoustic version of Bush’s “Glycerin” and Blink 182’s “Dammit” on there. The rest of it I’ve long since forgotten.
